Phil in Walthamstow this week running a Safeguarding briefing for the local Citizens Advice bureau.

CAB have been giving free confidential and impartial advice for nearly 75 years, they are a vital first stop for people wanting help and not knowing where to turn. Issues like debt have always been high on the agenda but safeguarding issues have a growing profile in the minds of the public, people concerned about bullying, online grooming, people trafficking, FGM (female genital mutilation) and abuse.

Would you know what to do if a colleague or employee or member of the public raised one of these issues? What is your organisation doing to help raise awareness and ensure people know where to turn for help when they need it? If you’d like help to think through some of the issues and implications of current Safeguarding practice get in touch with Phil on 07902929874.
